GNOME interface to peercast - peercast-servent data files

Geekast is an alternative to the Web interface. Currently, it can perform audio (Ogg and MP3) or video (OGM) streaming through an external player like totem, or an internal player based on the GStreamer multimedia framework. In the future, it should be possible to encode a Webcam or any input stream over the peercast network. This package provides the data files needed to make geekast work with peercast-servent.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
